William Henry's Revelations

Evidence that Jesus was Married

This week, the existence of a papyrus fragment containing evidence that Jesus was married was announced in the New York Times. This explosive story has already been blocked by FaceBook, which won't allow posting of the New York Times story. The papyrus promises to cause extraordinary controversy in coming weeks. Inevitably, its authenticity will be denied by the forces of entrenched belief. The fragment is already being questioned, but most experts, including Harvard professor of divinity Karen King, believe it to be authentic.

Tricia McCannon, the author of Jesus: the Explosive Story of the 30 Lost Years and the Ancient Mystery Religions, discusses the meaning and implications of the fragment with William Henry.

I thought the press loved controversay, so, what's up with this. Almost VOID in the news today.


William, it will be interesting to see how this all plays out. With such a tiny piece of information it could be anything BUT what really got my attention is how you pretty much said the same thing.....


CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — A historian of early Christianity at Harvard Divinity School has identified a scrap of papyrus that she says was written in Coptic in the fourth century and contains a phrase never seen in any piece of scripture: "Jesus said to them, 'My wife …'"

The faded papyrus fragment is smaller than a business card, with eight lines on one side, in black ink legible under a magnifying glass. Just below the line about Jesus having a wife, the papyrus includes a second provocative clause that purportedly says, “she will be able to be my disciple.”

There are 12 different recorded appearances of Jesus:

His first appearance was to Mary Magdalene, his wife and chief apostle, on the first Sunday after the Crucifixion. (Mark 16:9; John 20:10-18).

This should be no surprise. Some gnostic texts in the Nag Hammadi library refer to the intimate relationship between Jesus and Mary Magdalene, and to them being married. They also refer to Mary as the person chosen as his spiritual heir, and to the hostility of male disciples to her for those reasons. Too long has the church denied the feminine aspect of the divine, allowing Christianity to become masculinized. If Jesus was to demonstrate to humanity the way back to God, surely he must come as a human being, subject to the same temptations, fears, passions and challenges of the human, and using the same pathways of love and forgiveness that are open to human beings to spiritual awakening. Yes, he knew what he had come for, and with knowledge of his true relationship with God, but he willingly entered into humanity not as something apart, but as a light to show the way the way of love. And why cannot love of another human being and sexual expression of that love be a part of that way for Jesus as it can be for us?

Oh, by the way, I posted the New York Times article on Facebook without any problems.

Well, the Catholic church should embrace this information and adjust themselves accordingly, else Nostradamus' prediction about this being the last pope (or the brief one right after him) and the end of the church will surely follow and good riddance. Covering up years of sex abuse, pedophelia, the abuse of girls and boys does not make it go away or erase the deep scars left on the victims. I won't even get into the OTHER kinds of physical, mental and spiritual abuse inflicted with this idiotic "born in sin" shame... The other churches/religions, well, they can jolly well get real too. I for one, have no use for patriarchal religions that try to tell me I'm some kind of second class citizen because I have different "plumbing". I find it fascinating that there was a little blurb about a woman in Iran just a day or so ago, who attacked one of those idiotic mullahs who was badgering her to "cover up" more than she apparently was. She yelled at him to cover his eyes instead, and then when he kept at her, she went after him. About time. Let's hope there is more of that. When the women can be free to be whole human beings, all of humanity benefits.

Re: Lisa A.

You just don't get it, what religion is and what it is for. It is not politics of the day. The Catholic Church is 2000 years old, founded by Jesus, and the post Vatican II "Church" is considered to be a false Newchurch by traditional Catholics. The Modernist "popes" since 1958 could not really even be popes since they preach many things opposed to Catholic teaching. Check the encyclical by Leo XIII "Rerum Novarum" and Pius XI's "Quadrigesima Anno" to find out what Catholic social teaching really is, and how it is ignored by current antipopes. I bet your opinions will change and you may lose some of your hatred for the Church, based seemingly mostly on your "plumbing."

You seem so concerned about your standing in modern society as a woman that you have no sense of the spirit. Do you think that modern society is a good society, in general? Do you even believe in God, or that Jesus is the Son of God? ie, God become man to pay the necessary price for the sins of humanity (many of which concern the treatment of women in the past, and the sins of today's "liberated" women.) Have you ever sinned? Do you not need a Redeemer in the face of God's terrifyingly perfect justice?

In any case, if you haven't noticed, women are more "free" in today's America than you have ever been in all of recorded history. Your natural generative functions are now entirely voluntary, and women are now free to abuse men sexually and emotionally just as men have always been free to abuse women. Does this make you happy? Are you so wise and learned that you feel that you can call ideas which are 2,000 years old, and upon which Western society is based "idiotic?" But then, liberals love to call people names, I have come to realize, instead of respectfully exchanging ideas with those whom you disagree with.

You sound like a man hating lesbian to me, if you care to hear the truth. See, it is easy to call people names and belittle their beliefs by name calling. But, as I assume you say, "It's all good."

I am elated with this news concerning Jesus and Mary. I love them both.

I have tried three times to download this session and still the very most I can get is about 15 minutes of the interview. Did anyone else have trouble downloading it? BTW before anyone asks, yes I AM a subscriber.
